Dear All,

 

Mayo Manufacturing company always getting complaints that closed cap mayo contains hair, is there any solution for detection of hair inside empty or filled bottles? ,

 

I know that preventive measure " Personal hygiene " should be in place, any other solutions,

 

 

Thanks,

 

Omar

Hi Omar,

 

The typical procedure for testing for hairs in food involves a "Filth Test " lab. procedure, eg

Operationally, i suggest an audit. Seeing is believing.


Kind Regards,

Thanks, Charles,

 

Do you know anything about antistatic hair removal in the food industry?

Do you have preventative measures in place?  Your wording in your first post reads as if you don't.....it is much easier and more cost efficient to remove the hazard than try to remove the foreign body after the fact, and that you said you ALWAYS get complaints about this means you have a GMP issue


Because we always have is never an appropriate response!

Totally agree. IMEX the causes have ranged from deficiencies due raw materials, pests, brooms, personal hygiene.

I have never come across any anti-static hair removal devices and I would not be confident of their efficacy anyway.

 

A couple of thoughts.

 

First, are you sure it is hair. With jar closure manufacture it is possible to get something called 'angel hair' which are fine threads of the sealing compound. Rare, but can happen.

 

The second relates to your preventative measures. More than the hair covering aspect, do you have any jar rinsers or blowers over the closure feed?
